Chelsea finally heaved a sigh of relief as Roberto Di Matteo's men managed to secure a 1-0 victory over Stoke City in the two teams' Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.

After continuous pressing, Chelsea were finally rewarded at the 67th minute when Ivorian star Didier Drogba, who turns 34 today (11 March), netted his 100th Premier League to put the Blues in front.

Stoke City, who managed to get a player sent off at the 25th minute, defended well but they were unable to stop the Blues from taking the valuable three points of the match.

This is the Blues' second successive win under temporary manager Roberto Di Matteo.
